Columbus’ Stereomonster can always be counted on to bring a good time whenever they play here in Macon. Their version of hip-hop/rock fusion is full of energy and it’s infectious! All their jumping around gets under your skin and before you know it, you’re right there with them having a good time. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Funk You and Sumilan

Saturday at the Cox Capitol Theatre

You’ve been hanging out with family since Wednesday. You need to get away for a little while and blow off some steam. This is the party for you! Augusta’s Funk You has been building a following here in Macon with their fun, danceable live shows. Sumilan brings a progressive rock style. These two great bands are joined by Eddie and the Public Speakers, who add a funk-jazz fusion style to the mix. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 and proceeds benefit the Macon chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Travis Denning

Saturday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

It’s Travis Denning’s birthday y’all! Denning has made a name for himself as Middle Georgia’s favorite young country musician. Not only is he a great singer, he’s a fantastic guitar player as well. He’s sure to be joined by Josh Graff (another fantastic Middle Georgia guitarist) and there’s no telling who else may show up to celebrate with this talented young man. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Junior Brown with Dean Alexander

Tuesday at the Cox Capitol Theatre

Fans of Sirius/XM Radio’s Outlaw Country station are sure to know Junior Brown. He became known for playing his custom made “guit-steel,” which combines a guitar with a lap steel for slide playing. He’s best known for the very funny song, “My Wife Thinks You’re Dead.” Brown will be joined by up-and-coming Warner Brothers recording artist Dean Alexander. Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 day of show.

Tab Benoit

Wednesday at the Cox Capitol Theatre

The last time Tab Benoit played in Macon, people were treated to a Louisiana blues show that was talked about for weeks after. Those who missed it ended up wishing they had been there. He returns to Macon to bring more of his gritty sound to Middle Georgia. He learned his style from some of Louisiana’s best players and it’s not out of the ordinary to hear him perform a couple of Otis Redding songs. Tickets are $16 in advance, $20 day of show.
